I fell in love with Marcario and Jelani when they first walked into my imagination while I was writing Caress of Fur. In that same book we first met Gordon's quiet secretary, Jessica. At the time, I had no idea that fate would bring these three together. It wasn't until I was working on Embraced by Fur, when we met Jessica's obnoxious boyfriend, that I thought she needed a pair of men who could take care of her but not intimidate her.
Not everyone in Ecstasy Lake has a predator hiding within them.
Jessica Tam needs security in her life, but her choices have left her feeling anything but. She meets Jelani and Marcario Bennett the night she decides to change it all. They are the ones to support her and make her feel safe, but she knows they are planning on going back to the Congo with Doctors without Borders.
Marcario and Jelani have come to Ecstasy Lake with an ulterior motive, besides spending time with their sister. Marcario has been dreaming of Jessica's skin wrapped in his ropes and Jelani wants to capture the images on film. Jessica has changed in the past months, and they have to first convince her that she is perfect just as she is. Discovering they aren't the only ones obsessed with her adds another challenge. Can they keep her safe and happy without becoming overprotective and scaring her off?
The moment Jelani got her in the door, he pressed her against the wall and kissed her with a thought-scattering intensity. Those carefully banked embers leapt into flame inside of her, as heat poured along her senses. His lips were as soft as silk, but strong enough not to feel feminine. His hands slid down her sides and around her ass. Grabbing handfuls of her ass, he lifted her up and she immediately wrapped her legs around his hips. He pressed his hips against her and she felt an impressive erection against her pussy. She dropped her head back against the wall as the pressure almost stole her breath.
“Oh god, that feels good.” He rotated his hips against her and Jessica almost came from the intensity of it all. Sex with Geoff had been as exciting as year-end accounting compared to this moment.
“I’ve been waiting months to get my hands on you.”
“You have no idea how many times I have thought of those sexy moans you make in your sleep.”
Jessica acutely remembered the dream she’d had that day. The exquisite feel of their hands on her skin, the way her body ached for both their touch. But only Jelani was touching her now.
Fear hit her system like a snowball. Did she do something to insult him? She opened her eyes wondering where Marcario had gone. A panicked scan of the foyer revealed him standing against the opposite wall, watching them. One hand pressed between his body and the wall and he rubbed the large bulge in his pants with the other. “Don’t worry, sweetheart. I’m still here, too.”
“I’m sorry.” The words fell from her lips before she could stop them.
Jelani nibbled on the side of her neck and he pressed against her pussy again, swiveling his hips right against her clit, sending another blast of pleasure along her limbs. “Don’t apologize, babe. You’ve done nothing wrong. Marcario likes to watch. He’ll be all over you as soon as I move.”
Her gaze met Marcario’s and he winked at her. “Take your time. I could watch her all night.”
“He’ll never last that long,” Jelani whispered into her ear and she smiled.
“You make her smile like that again, and I won’t be able to get my cock out of my pants quick enough.”
“I’d take that as a challenge, Jessica.”
She didn’t have a chance to respond because his fingers danced along her ribcage, making her laugh and wriggle against him. He caught a particularly sensitive spot and she squealed and jumped in his arms. A split second later Marcario was next to her, his fingers tangled in her hair. He held her head as he plundered her mouth and wrapped his other hand around her breast. Jelani lifted her up a tad higher so he could press his bulging cock against her cunt.
The fabric between them frustrated the hell out of her. She wanted to feel their skin rasp against hers and smell their combined scents. She tried to move her head back to demand more but Marcario kept her in place. She always felt trapped when Geoff acted high-handed like this. But being caught between Jelani and Marcario, she felt as if she’d been created to be right here right now.
The demand for oxygen separated them, but not before Marcario nipped her lower lip. “Fuck, you are incredible. I want these clothes off you.”
“I couldn’t agree more.” Jelani lifted her up over his shoulder as if she didn’t weigh anything at all. He started walking down the hall and she spoke
“What are you, a caveman?” Jessica pressed her hands against his lower back and looked at Marcario who was following close behind them.
“I think that is an accurate description of how we are feeling right now." Marcario winked at her. "Be thankful he’s considerate enough to take you somewhere soft. I would have fucked you against the wall.”
“You think so, huh?” She didn’t understand the need to push at Marcario, but she wasn’t going to give in that easy. Part of her wanted him to fight for the right to claim her. I would have let him, though.
Jelani smacked her upturned ass, sending a wave of heat and need straight to her aching clit. “Watch it, babe, or you’ll find yourself tied up before you know it.”
Marcario groaned and rubbed at the bulge in his pants as he walked. “Don’t say things like that.”
She felt the world tilt and her back landed on a soft mattress. She popped back up and started pulling of her clothes as fast as they were. Pieces of clothing landed all over the room. Marcario finished first and grabbed her legs, sliding her down the bed until she sat at the edge. He pressed her knees apart as Jelani circled the room, turning on a light on each side of the bed.
Feeling exposed, she tried to fight against Marcario’s silent demand, but he wasn’t letting her get away with it. “Don’t try to hide from me, Jess. He wasn’t kidding. I’ll tie you down if I have to.”
“Oh, yes, he would in a heartbeat." Jelani tossed his shirt across the room and crawled into the bed behind her We didn’t expect this tonight, or I guarantee he would have had all his ropes out and ready for you.”
The idea of that intrigued her, and she felt a warm rush of moisture flood her entrance.
“Look at how wet that made her.” Marcario used his shoulders to keep her legs open and slipped a couple fingers over her drenched pussy lips. “You’re a woman after my own heart.”
